We'll launch our LONGEST run of the season from our normal rendezvous point at the Marina Promenade. We'll head West on the Promenade towards the Warming Hut. Upon reaching the Warming Hut, you will run past the Warming Hut and take an IMMEDIATE left to head towards LONG AVENUE. Long Avenue is effectively a short hill that heads up towards Lincoln.
Everyone will head up Long Avenue along the shoulder until you reach a stop sign. This is LINCOLN.
Take a right on to the paved cyclist/pedestrian path and follow this
path to your right.
The path will eventually curve to your left and dead ends. At this point you need to make your way onto the shoulder of Lincoln. Head uphill on the shoulder of Lincoln for roughly 200 meters. Look to your right and you will see the parking lot for the visitor center for the GGB. Turn RIGHT into this parking lot and head towards the Golden Gate Bridge.
BE CAREFUL ON THE BRIDGE! THERE ARE TYPICALLY A REASONABLE NUMBER OF TOURISTS WHO
AREN'T PAYING ATTENTION ON THE BRIDGE. ADDITIONALLY, THERE ARE CYCLISTS, RUNNERS, AND PEDESTRIANS FREQUENTLY USING THE BRIDGE. BE SMART AND BE POLITE IF YOU NEED TO GET
Everyone will continue to the end of the bridge to the Visitor Center. This is 3 MILES. Stop here to grab some water, use the restroom, and/or take a gel, clif
shot, etc. Everyone will turn around here and return to our starting point.
To pick up your extra 2 miles, you will head EAST on the Marina Promenade past the East Beach. Eventually the promenade runs into the parking lot for the volleyball courts. Cut through the volleyball courts and get onto Marina Boulevard.
Turn LEFT on Marina Boulevard and run to the intersection of Marina/Broderick. There is a stop sign and a crosswalk here, but I will also try to put down an 'ACS' in chalk for you as well. Turn around here and head back to where we started for 8 MILES!
